    Don't worry, I still remember most of the names I see here. Also I still remember about the glass eating (guess you know who I'm referencing here lol).

    Decided to login and say hello since it's been over a year! No idea why I went inactive on here, I enjoyed these boards quite a bit.

    Glad someone else agrees with me. That is all I thought throughout, hopefully that changed. Well I have to agree with that.

    Went to see The Force Awakens yesterday, and really liked the movie. This movie is awesome.

    Well, the person I was communicating with on ebay to have more information about a motherboard just stopped talking to me, guess they sold it before I could get it. Pretty much a good thing since I went too fast and should wait until feb to be able to afford it without going under. I just moved and that's pretty expensive, and I will have my first electricity and internet bills that will include 2 months since they work on pro-rata rates...

    Well the music we like isn't mainstream. I don't think they would go anywhere near the music Dream Theater makes in high school :P. Also Funny, apparently on Black Ops 3, Dream Theater is offensive language.

    Well, crappy coincidence, same day I got my new graphics card for my desktop, my laptop failed... A 2 year old laptop, and it doesn't post anymore, took it all appart, removed the BIOS battery so it would fully reset, rebuilt it up, and the only difference is that it was able to give it's light codes instead of just doing nothing, so looks like I'll recycle it. Found on ebay, though, that the prices for the motherboards for my even older laptop that the motherboard died 2.5 years ago, are lower than they were. I might be able to revive my old G53SW (which would still be much stronger than the laptop that just died) for the fraction of a laptop price, some fully tested motherboards for it are between $150 and $350, which is lower than they were selling on there 2 years ago.

    I got my new graphics card today, that I had ordered a couple of weeks ago (but was on back order because of the best sale I had seen in years on this kind of thing, even beat the black friday sale). Guess my old cards were on their way out since even without being in a game the image is much better and clearer on both my screens, and that single 960 (4gb sc evga edition) will beat my old 550ti sli without lifting a finger.

    Duct tape can fix anything, better block it from going down by putting some duct tape at the bottom then making sure no water goes through by putting some on top of the window :twss:

    Do you have breakers? You could turn one off and move the stuff you need to other outlets?

    We could almost meet, but I just moved out of Quebec City, I'm 1 hour away now lol.

    Nice! I have that phone (and both my brothers got the G4 at about the same time). I love the G3.

    Thinking about theporarily changing my avatar from the Acadian flag to the France flag in support to them, but I doubt there are any french people on these boards. These events are the reason there is so much islamophobia these days. While countries should do more to try to eradicate IS while protecting the innocent people, It's not easy either because they can hide as "refugees". I purchased a GTX 970 on sale for cheap. Runs it beautifully. I was going for the 4GB version of the 960, should run it beautifully as well. Doesn't have the 3.5GB/0.5GB vram problem the 970 has.
  14. Well, Guess I'll have to upgrade my graphics sooner than I thought... My dual 550ti SLI setup I transfered from my old to my new computer when I built it (to save on costs at the time, last spring), can't handle Fallout 4 at a decent fps. I'll have to wait to see the black friday sales on graphics cards to see what I pick. I had originally planned on getting a 980ti, but will likely be lower than that now since I can't wait as long as I wanted.

    Well today I got Fallout 4, but my graphics cards setup can't handle it (the rest of the computer can). Guess I'll have to upgrade the graphics cards (currently dual GTX 550ti in SLI) earlier than I wanted to do it, and not for the card that I wanted. Was going for the 980ti ($900 CAD), waiting until the prices lower in 2016, but might go for an 9** series card still but much lower instead so I can play recent games with higher fps. Currently going 25 to 45 fps on Fallout 4, while going 90-120 on GTA5 at the same resolution. That sucks. At least I just got a new job that pays $8k more per year than my last job.

    The season pass if I'm not mistaken, was usually the same price as the game. Unless you're trying to play on the 360 or ps3 the game isn't stripped down at all. I don't know about battlefront though, from the beta the game was extremely unbalanced, can't wait to see if they fixed it.
  17. Just moved in in a new city and appartment. Thought I'd post an update here. I still have to do the wire management as you'll see in the pictures, but it has been done since taking the pictures. Specs: Case: Corsair Obsidian 450D Motherboard: Asus Z97-A CPU: Intel Core i5 4690K @ 4.3GHz (default speed being 3.5GHz) Graphics card: 2x Nvidia GTX 550ti Superclocked (EVGA) in SLI, soon to be replaced by a single GTX 980ti Storage: 128GB Crucial M500 (pretty old) + 1TB WD Caviar Black + 500GB WD Caviar Blue RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X (2 x 8GB kit)
  18. Well I'm probably a prime example of how Canadians are getting gouged by cellphone companies. For my 3 year old LG Optimus G I pay $80 per month with Telus for pretty much 100 min of talk, 6GB of Data, unlimited texting, and caller id. Looks like I can get $30/month for a better plan with Videotron (Quebec only).
  19. From what you are asking, any laptops that have an Nvidia or AMD video card could do, but won't be able to play the games you named at high graphics, since you have a pretty low budget. As DownToFletch asked, please define powered and we will suggest the best laptops for your budget.

    No he didn't. I can think of, uh...one? A couple rogue senators breaking spending rules? As far as scandals go, that's about the least scandalous one possible. From a taxation/economic perspective Trudeau's plans will cost just as much as Mulcair's, if not more. Also bear in mind that it's easy to claim he (Trudeau) will have open government; but his behaviour with whipped votes and nominations doesn't look promising in that regard. I'd be very surprised if he ended up being significantly more open than Harper. You want scandals? - Election fraud in the last elections, proven true - 3.1B still unaccounted for (that was supposed to go for anti-terrorism) - affiliated with fraudulent sentators - Promised to abolish the Senate but did the oposite, appointing many sentators - C-51 being looked into by international organisations for being too un-democratic - Going around the normal process to make new laws so that they can rush the bills into laws - biggest deficits in Canadian history - Using tax money for partisan ads, including starting the elections much earlier, it will cost us much more because of the longest election period yet - Canada (in)Action Plan I could go on..
  21. That new quest seems like it will be awesome.

    Well with the Canadian elections being launched, I know I'm not voting for Harper. He ruined our economy and had so many scandals. We just don't have good candidates. I think the better one would be Trudeau because he has some of the same plans as Harper but not going against democracy like Harper is doing. Mulcair would just cost taxpayers way more than we already pay.

    This is a great time to be looking for a job too. You're gonna get paid so much Yeah a lot of places pay more for the same job I was doing, best time of the year I guess to apply for jobs.

    Lost my job, already got interviews lined up for another job 2 weeks later.
  25. Usually Anything logitech is good and they install their driver automatically provided you have an active internet connection. Personally I find the C920 pretty good.
